Hooker ‘knifed punter who refused her sex demands’
A PROSTITUTE repeatedly knifed a would-be punter after he refused to have sex with her for money, the Old Bailey heard.
Barbara Alexis, 56, lured Abdiwelli Hassan to her home on the promise of meeting an escort called Sandra.
She was nowhere to be seen when he arrived with friend Andrew McGrath in tow – but Alexis told him he could pay for sex with her.
When he rebuffed her, she robbed him at knifepoint of £60 in cash, it is alleged.
He tried to disarm her but was tackled by henchmen Ruben Musa, 51, and Jason Smith, 45, who wielded an axe and another blade, jurors were told.
Alexis repeatedly stabbed through his arm and also slashed his legs and face, the court heard.
Oozing blood, the terrified Mr Hassan was only released after Mr McGrath begged the attackers to let them go free.
Alexis, of Acton, west London; Musa, of Tottenham, north London; and Smith, of Notting Hill, west London, all deny wounding with intent, robbery and attempted robbery.
The trial is continuing.
